It links to a tablet, phone, or computer (via Bluetooth) and a radio (via cable).
The Mobilinkd is a KISS TNC. It MOdulates/DEModulates between the radio audio in/out and a digital signal sent over the Bluetooth-serial link while facilitating switching of the radio PTT.
The end functionality is completely dependent upon software. One of the most common uses is for APRS:
|Mobilinkd TNC 2.2 w/ Baofeng UV-3R and APRSdroid on a tablet.|
The high resolution screen is ideal for mapping APRS data.
|The radio and TNC are a compact package.|
The Bluetooth is nice as the tablet is not constrained by a physical link to the TNC.
